Grilled turkey is going to be your next best idea for Thanksgiving. It frees up oven space and lends itself to some delicious char marks that you don’t get from oven roasting. This turkey will complement just about any side. In case you need them, our green bean casserole, classic stuffing, and homemade biscuits are a win-win-win.

Prep Time: 20 mins

  • 1 (12-lb.) whole turkey
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for rubbing
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 c. (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 10 cloves garlic, grated or minced
  • Zest and juice of 1 medium lemon
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 c. low-sodium turkey stock
  • Sprigs thyme and grilled lemon halves, for serving (optional)


  • Preheat grill to 400°. Rub outside of turkey with oil; season with salt and pepper on all sides.
  • In a small pot over medium-high heat, melt butter. Stir in garlic, lemon zest and juice, parsley, rosemary, sage, and thyme. Remove from heat; set aside.
  • Arrange turkey breast side down on grill. Grill until char marks appear, 5 to 10 minutes. Using large tongs, carefully turn turkey and continue to grill until char marks appear, 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Carefully transfer turkey to a large aluminum roasting pan and pour in stock. Brush turkey with reserved herb butter.
  • Place pan on grill and close grill. Grill turkey, basting with herb butter every 30 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of turkey registers 165°, about 2 hours 30 minutes.
  • Let turkey sit 30 minutes before slicing. Arrange turkey and thyme, if using, on a platter. Serve with lemon halves, if using, alongside.
